Keeping a Sketchy Journal

It started off as just getting back into the groove of writing and doing some hand-lettering, then I decided I’m going to start recording and responding to what I was about to see and experience for the blog as doodles in my sketchbook. Since this is our first day in London, there was little of hardcore art and design exploration for me. If you’re interested in knowing what these mundane doodles meant, then keep on reading.

The latest episode of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” was on my mind when I was waiting at the airport, which led me to drawing one of the contestant’s signature make-up look. I was also drawing a person’s portrait in the waiting room. I poorly drew a batik pattern on a lady’s shirt on the customs queue line. The ‘EAT.’ type was a restaurant chain that we passed by a couple of times in the taxi on the way to the airport. We passed by the Big Ben and some street signs in the taxi to the hotel. “Catfish” was on MTV when I was waiting to meet the group for dinner. And lastly, I drew a quick rendition of my outfit of the day (OOTD), which consists of my shirt and shoes for our group dinner. At the end of the day, I am still very much confused whether we should be walking on the left or right side as a pedestrian.
